    Are these the one's called Resurrection Lily? In the spring you have large Daffodil like leaves, then then die - then when you think the stupid plant died up comes a stalk which grows several inches a day then out pops the Lily's?

    yup. Here's mine :)

    Aren't they beautiful? In the spring I get so many leaves coming up, can't wait to see the blooms. Only thing is, I have to go around the fence to the neighbors side to see my "ladies". I get the greenery, she gets the flowers.

    We grew up calling them "Suprise Lillies". Ours have been blooming for over 2 weeks now.

    I had only 1 come up this year. I've always had several. I think my DH has been "working" in the yard again.

    I just came in from outdoors.I watered the 2 blubs and kinda dug around.I see 1 looks like it might be ready to send up a bud stem i hope.I've always heard them called Naked Ladies but that depends on the area of the country,i think.

    We've lived in this house for less than a year so we were delighted to find hardy amaryllis planted here. My 13 year old granddaughter was visiting when my hubby came in and asked me "Did you see all the naked ladies out front?" She about went into shock! WHAATTT???!!! LOL

    My FIL use to grow them all the time, I think the name fasinated him more than the flower.

    We call them "spider lilies". they do resemble a spider. Maybe we are talking about 2 different things.

    We called them Surprise Lily were I lived in MO. IA is always a week or two behind MO in growing. Mine have been blooming for several days. I've never cut mine, didn't realize they smelled so good. I'll have to cut some.
